* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'': PlayedForLaughs. Since most members of the cast are {{Mad Scientist}}s, the vast majority of the plots could be averted if they contemplated the consequences of their actions for half a second. It's to the point that Mell, a violent girl of average intelligence, consistently ends up on top simply because of her ability to think in a straight line.
-->'''Helen:''' It's at times like this that I question my policy of doing whatever dumb thing pops into my head.

* There were...many, many problems with the now-defunct ''US Angel Corps''. The least graphic of these were all the leaps of logic that comprised the premise: the US government reinstates a failed program from World War II, then addresses precisely none of the issues that doomed that program. They don't give their Spec Ops agents more than basic training (if even that), appropriate load-outs, any backup, or even ''armour''. Then they act all surprised when things go south.

* Justified in the plot of [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Webcomic/Homestuck Homestuck]], as the main characters are kids and have to adhere to the laws of causality [[spoiler: which make every single mistake they make required for paradoxes to not occur.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', bad-tempered girl-with-issues Faye Whittaker takes the initiative and hooks up with her insecure boss Dora's popular brother Sven, who is famous among the entire cast as a playboy that engages in completely physical relationships with no monogamy involved. Throughout their somewhat antagonistic sexual relationship, Sven repeatedly tells Faye that it's just physical, and that he retains the right to have sex with other girls whenever he wants. Despite this, when he actually does ''exactly what he said he was going to do'', Faye is crushed as if he had cheated on her, Dora is chomping at the bit to kick his ass, and the rest of the cast likewise treats Sven with disdain. The only character that didn't juggle the Idiot Ball in this instance was Penelope, who outright lampshades that nobody should have been surprised that Sven slept with another girl.

* Subverted by ''Achewood''; Ray is incredibly foolish by any objective standard, but his impulsive and thoughtless (albeit confident) behavior is invariably rewarded by the rules of the world in which he lives. (He gains his initial riches by selling his soul, for crying out loud, which results in only a brief detour in Hell before allowing him to enjoy his riches for the entire run of the strip.)
